The DuraClass Alumax heavy duty aluminum dump body offers high strength and low body weight for long life and maximum payloads. Typically up to 50 percent lighter than traditional steel, the decreased body weight of aluminum bodies increases payload capacity, minimizes fuel consumption and can improve truck life, according to the manufacturer.

The Alumax features a heavy duty 8-in. (20 cm) extruded top rail that resists bowing from heavy internal loads. The heavy duty bottom rail, which includes an inside radius for faster and cleaner dumping, ties the deck, sides, crossmembers, vertical posts and outside dirt shedders together providing increased structural integrity.

Aluminum 5 ¾-in. (14.6 cm) I-beam longmembers have an integrated rubber track and rubber riser to reduce shock and noise. The 4-in. (10 cm) stacked “U” shaped crossmembers provide extra load bearing vertical walls. The unit’s crossmembers are on 12-in. (30.5 cm) centers and feature gussets at each crossmember.

DuraClass Alumax has configurations and options to meet the specifications of municipalities and contractors. These options include additional oval light holes, center sliding patchgate, and spill apron. The Alumax is available in a wide variety of lengths, side heights and rear heights.

DuraClass designs and manufactures a comprehensive range of premium Class 3 — 8 dump bodies, hoists, and related equipment and offers more than 100 years of engineering and manufacturing expertise.
